  • Patent number: 10836707
    Abstract: Disclosed are a mild and efficient preparation method for an ?-acyloxyenamide compound and a use thereof in the synthesis of an amide and a polypeptide. The ?-acyloxyenamide compound is obtained by an addition reaction of a ynamide and a carboxylic acid in dichloromethane under conditions where the temperature is 0° C. to 50° C.; the produced ?-acyloxyenamide compound can react with an amine compound to produce an amide or a polypeptide; the two reactions can be carried out step by step, and can also be carried out in one pot. According to the invention, the reaction conditions are mild and no metal catalyst is required; when the carboxylic acid, which has chirality on an alpha site of carboxyl, forms an amide bond or a peptide bond, no racemization occurs; and the operation is simple and the application range is wide.

  • Patent number: 10793525
    Abstract: The synthesis and in vitro and in vivo anti-breast and anti-prostate cancers activities of novel C-4 heteroaryl 13-cis retinamides that modulate Mnk-eIF4E and AR signaling are discussed. In both breast and prostate cancer cell lines, these compounds induce Mnk1/2 degradation to substantially suppress eIF4E phosphorylation. In prostate cancer cells, the compounds induce degradation of both full-length androgen receptor (fAR) and splice variant AR (AR-V7) to inhibit AR transcriptional activity. The consequences of these multiple activities resulted in inhibition of cell growth and migration and induction of apoptosis. Finally and importantly, the compounds demonstrate strong in vitro and in vivo anti-breast and anti-prostate cancer activities, with no apparent host toxicities.
